Dear Gavin,
Happy birthday!
For the past couple of weeks I have been wondering
what I could do for your birthday.
I thought about the coupon I made
you for your last birthday here on earth.

Free dinner and dessert- made by me.

I wish you could cash that one in today.
I wish I could at least call you and tell you
how cool I think you are and thank you
for being such a beautiful part of my life.
The days I spent with you are definitely
numbered among the best of my life.

I miss you everyday.
Love Cinnamon Girl

Beautiful Erin Jane, I love you.
Thank you for this amazing post.
You can't begin to know how exquisite it is to know that others remember and love him.

And now, in response-
I'm thinkin Gavin would say something pretty much like this . . .

i love that you still laugh and cry at the same time

Happy Birthday Gavin.I always got so excited when I saw you. For some reason when I think of you, I picture you shirtless with a cat on your shoulder and talking about dinosaurs or pretending to be in a magical world. My time in Hawaii was magical and you and erin were a part of it.
